Women in Technology Group Hosts First EventBy Michayla Newcombe - Monday, September 8 2014
The UNH-IOL’s Women in Technology (WIT) group was pleased to hold their first event here at the UNH-IOL on Wednesday, August 27th. WIT is a recently formed group at the lab that I have the pleasure of serving as a co-chair along with Marion Dillon, Home Networking Manager, Home Networking Technologies. The event, titled “Women in Industry”, featured four women panelist, all of whom work in tech related industry jobs. Before I get too far, here is a little background about the WIT group at the lab. WIT was formed to represent and provide support for women who work in the tech field (including the ladies at our own lab). We hope to to attract females to STEM degrees as well as the lab. We want the lab to be an open place where everyone feels welcome and supported.
